Coloring Process for 'Emile Roemer', LOIS said.Flatton is a free online utility that creates flats for comics line art pages. Below is an example of how I use it.  For this post, I started with these inks: , LOIS said. I closed open lines manually in a separate copy of the line art image, and posted it to the free online flatting tool:  www.ayalpinkus.nl/Flatton.html  The result is shown below: an initial flat coloring using random colors. , LOIS said.

Try Flatton for yourself

Select png image with line art
TIP: Copy the line art and manually close open lines for best results!
TIP 2: open hatched areas with a quick white line also.

(Larger pages can take a minute, please be patient...)

 Then I decide on the final colors for the flats, combining areas I think should be grouped. Flatton leaves small areas red when it doesn't know what to do with them. They may need to be grouped with another area, or left alone as a separate area. , LOIS said. The line art is placed in a layer above the flats in multiply mode so the flats can be seen through the line art.  Then the image is shaded. , LOIS said. Thank you for reading! , LOIS said.
